The Caumasee is a lake located near Flims, in the Swiss canton of Grisons.
The lake is fed by underground sources. The level of the lake varies by approximately 4 to 5 meters along with the varying underground water flow during the year. It is about at 997 meters altitude and can be reached via a specially constructed funicular.
Since 1937, a funicular of 125 meters leads down to the lake. The Caumasee lift is in operation during the summer season, its use is free. During the bathing season, a reasonably priced entrance fee will be charged in the infrastructure area.
The lake is a popular spot in summer , Especially in early summer, the lake has comparatively high temperatures, because of the lower volume on the still low water level and the underground feed.
